Sparkle Pop Metallic Gel Pens

I’m so excited to share with you my latest favorite coloring tool–the Pentel Sparkle Pop Metallic Gel Pens! They are a metallic/glitter pen that looks gorgeous on both white and black paper. I discovered how much I like them during one of my recent Youtube live events. I liked them so much that I decided to record a full Sparkle Pop review and do a giveaway!

    Hi Jennifer, I followed all the steps for extra entities but couldn’t get a tick on all of them even though they are done 🙁 follow you on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest didn’t come back with a tick so I’m not sure what is happening but anyway I love the look of these pens and hope I can win to try them. Good luck to everyone
    Thank you

  • Patti Armstrong Jul 10, 2018 @ 19:26

    Yes….I started with the glitter and metallic pens because they add so so much to a picture. I felt I was doing magic to a picture but then they started running so so bad, smuggling so bad I had to stop . I thought it might be the heat of end of summer . I loved them so much.

  • Carol Reid Jul 10, 2018 @ 19:50

    Thank you for having this giveaway!
    These pens look like everything I really love in a gel pen and more!
    The ability to write & look wonderful on black or dark surfaces and white/light surfaces, flows well, doesn’t skip or hang up, fits well in hands AND the ink looks like interference ink (the color change aspect), has iridescent ink, glitter too!!! What could be better!?!
    Most glitter gel pens I’ve had, with few exceptions, get the glitter stuck in the ball and they skip, or worse, stop writing all together! (Even when new!)
    Having an interference, metallic, iridescent, glitter ink that’s 1mm and the ink flows is a dream pen! The colors look amazing, and I’m sure even better in person!
    I hope I win a set!!! I REALLY want these!
    This is the most excited I’ve been about a new type of pen for a very long time!
    These pens will be used for sure!
    I DO wonder about buying refill cartridges for them. I know my favorite gel pens get used up fairly quickly! If it can write beautifully on black, has that metallic look, those are my first ones to go! I generally keep 2 silvers & 2 turquoise metallic pens for every set of other colors.
    These pens are on my wish list, at the top!!!

  • Carol Reid Jul 10, 2018 @ 21:16

    I have a set of the Sakura gel pens I bought many years ago, and have had to replace several because I used them up. These are great pens too!
    I can’t wait until I get to try the Pentel Pop pens. The review looks incredible!
    I love metallics & milkies that show up well on a black and white background! I especially like the metallics on black. There’s something about the metallics on black that simply look amazing, no matter what you draw or doodle!
    So many people buy the huge, inexpensive sets, that are mostly ok on white paper, yet even the white and silver pens don’t generally do well on a black surface. The silver and white pens are a bit exciting,as the actually show up on a dark surface…
    BUT, once you get a really good set that really pops on black AND white surfaces, you’ll never want to go back! The really inexpensive sets also have clogging issues, skipping and the balls freeze up a lot with the glitter pens.
    If you’re new to gel pens, I would strongly suggest getting a smaller set of a good, name-brand pens over a huge set of inexpensive pens! You’ll likely save a bunch of money and frustration, as they simply don’t perform like a quality set.
    The Gelli Rolls, Sakuras, Pentels, etc. are well worth spending even 3-4 times as much, as you’ll really get that much more use out of them!
    If you see a pen or pen set that you’re interested in, yet are not sure about, watch some reviews on Coloring Bliss! This channel will save you money! I’ve bought a number of sets over the years, and can tell you from experience that it’s worth watching reviews and getting pens that do what you want them to do from the get-go!
    When you buy products for kids, the same rules apply! Getting some quality art products, even student grade, can relieve a lot of frustration, and even boost the self-esteem of some kids who might even think that its something they did or didn’t do right that made their projects not turn out like the ones they’ve seen in commercials, at school, or an art show.
    It seems companies like Crayola, Faber-Castell and others, are discovering that even inexpensive art supplies shouldn’t be cheap quality to the point that they don’t work well!
    Kids don’t need a ton of art supplies, as they often don’t use many of them when they have so many anyhow.
    Getting them a descent quality set of art supplies will not only have them happier with the products, it will teach them to be more responsible as well, as you aren’t as likely to buy them a bunch more should they misuse them!

  • Melena Schneider Jul 16, 2018 @ 15:57

    Hi Jennifer. Here’s my review of the Sparkle Pop pens. I love the colors and especially like that some show up as a different color on black and white paper. They are also very juicy. I put the top cap on the end, which is normal, but one time the whole end cap came off with the top cap, pulling the center core of the pen right out. WOW! Figured out that it was because the end cap had come unscrewed a bit and when I twisted the top cap off it twisted the bottom cap and off it came. An easy fix, but one to watch. This also gave me the idea that maybe these pens are refillable. They don’t seem to have refills yet, but maybe if enough of us ask they will get refills for less expensive than the whole pen. I also have used a lot of the gold and silver pens, which I love, and have almost used them up. Unfortunately I don’t see where we can get them without buying a whole pack – no singles. So, I’ll tone it down with these pens for a bit until I can work this out. Thanks Jennifer and Steve for this great website.

  • Laura Barclay Jul 16, 2018 @ 21:54

    I don’t stray far from my Sakura gelly rolls, but I must try these. Thank you for sharing.

  • Jackie Sep 29, 2018 @ 11:14

    Beautiful & may I add your voice is perfect for these videos

  • Sox Dec 5, 2018 @ 13:29

    They are super pens, and I’ve used them all. I’m going to buy more after I post, I use them all the time. They flow out really well and you can actually see the color 10 stars in my book.

  • Nana Jan 18, 2019 @ 19:28

    I love watching your videos. They are so positive and we can all use that. I especially enjoyed this one. I discovered the Pentel Pop line also and love them. I learned that I am missing 4 colors. Time to Amazon! Thank you so much for showing what these pens can do. But…I have an orange pen that WILL NOT work. Do you know of any way to kick start these?
